    Hi,
    I am backing up my imac(Intel based)using a new Seagate Backup Plus 2TB.
    Our house power suddenly went off then back on but just enough to shut down the
    imac. When I restarted it, the Time Machine window showed none for latest backup.

    So...what to do ?
    The window says it is going to backup again in 1 hour. Should I just wait and let it
    do it's thing ? Or something else.

    I am doing this because the imac suddenly bent forward and I see that there is a problem
    with the spring that holds the moniter up. So I have to take it to an Apple Store. Also I realize
    that I should be backing it up anyway.

    Appreciate any advise !
    Thanks,
    Gary in Oregon

    Just manually start the backup again. Time Machine will do any necessary clean up with the unfinished backup.
